      you must have very good eyesight to see individual pixels at 264 PPI

        i bought a cheap 720p+ phone and its actually not that bad.

        A good 720 screen is fine IMO for a cheap phone and $59 is CHEAP.

        But locked.

        • +7

          People forget the first "retina" display iPad was the ipad3 and that had a PPI of 264. Same as this phone.

          • +3

            @Jaduqimon: Yeah true but typically because the device is smaller, you'd have to bring it closer to your face to have a similar view of the content which means you're more likely to see the pixels. This is precisely why TVs are all good with low PPIs.

            Not saying there's anything wrong with 264 PPI, just something to be noted.

      I bought one, as a spare device at home, only on WiFi. It's not that bad, slimline, rounded beveled edges. Only had it 1 day, so will see how I go.

      • yeah this is me

        i might slap in a cheap sim but as a device that runs wifi can stream music vids via BT and you can slap in a 64Gb sd card and you got heaps of storage

      Were you saying that about the Samsung Galaxy Note with it's lower resolution in 2011?

  • +1

    Wonder if this is (will be) upgrade-able to Android 11.

    • I would like to know this too, where do you find out? Telstra? ZTE?

  • +2

    NFC NFC Supported
    Wi-Fi Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
    Bluetooth Bluetooth 4.2

    ding ding we have a winner

    nfc for $59

    hopefully it runs on boost?

    • +1

      Should be, but not for Telstra Wholesale network.

      • +1

        Can confirm runs on boost. Not on woolworths mobile though.

  • Any idea if you can use an Aldi simcard in this?

    • +3

      No, Wholesale and Full coverage are not interchangeable. Related topic.

    • +1

      The only real pre paid it would support is Boost as they use the Telstra retail network. Every other uses the wholesale network.

      • I thought it would support Woolworths mobile :-/

        • +1

          Used to support some carriers like Aldi/Woolworths mobile etc but newer phones now only Telstra & Boost.

  • +3

    Any idea how much it will cost to unlock.

    • +2

      You can unlock your Telstra Pre-Paid mobile, iPhone or mobile broadband devices so they work on another network. If your service has been active for over two years, we don’t charge an unlocking fee, but if your service has been active for less than two years, we charge:
      $80 for devices that have never been activated, or active for six months or less
      $25 for devices activated for six months to two years

      https://www.telstra.com.au/support/mobiles-devices/unlock-ph...

      • I got charged $25 to unlock. Called 13 2200, gave them my IMEI. I have yet to try it out.

  • Anyone know if 5GHz wifi works with this?

    • no

    • +1

      Only if you buy the Pfizer upgrade package

      • +1

        WiFi is different tin foil to 5G buddy :P

      • And it only costs an arm or a leg (or any combination of, up to a loss of all four).

    Is it locked?

  • +1

    Dual Sim?

    • +3

      Prepaid network locked phones are never dual sim.

  • +3

    From what I've known, Optus would even unlock phones for free, but Telstra would charge you a hefty fee for sure if you want to unlock it right away without using with Telstra for X months.

    • Agreed. Telstra are much more stingy about unlocking.

      • 6 months is doable though….maybe….

  • +1

    Does this have a magnetometer/compass? Any good for games?

    • Would probably depend on what games you're talking about. Only has 3GB of ram.

      • Some basic VR - just need a magnetometer?

  • what processor is in this one?

    • some crappy ingsoc china 8 core A53 thing

      lots of cores, all no good

      tbf its not a bad phone, it can lag a bit on even mundane stuff, certainly questionable value at $120 but at $60… yeah

      seemed to have lots of updates so far but expect it to end

  • +1

    Excellent phone for the price, picked one up at Woolies yesterday as a spare. Most impressed with the battery life, and as someone mentioned, the NFC factor is amazing for the price point. Is a touch on the slow side but that's to be expected.

    • Any initial thought son the camera/video? Yes, I know it's $59 and expectations are set accordingly!

      • Pretty terrible 😃

        • Wish you'd replied about 30 minutes ago before I bought it!
          (j/k)

          Decent burner phone, but I did/do have intentions of running it for a tri-cam perspective.

          • @Charlie Dont Surf: Ha! If you have low expectations you can't be disappointed. What's the three cameras about? What does it let you do?

            • +1

              @wearytraveller: Just a really basic camera to capture from a third angle (rear-direction). It has to be better than what I'm using now (and should be, based on the listed specs) $59 burner phone otherwise!

              • +1

                @Charlie Dont Surf: its just a camera to fill in the spec sheet that expects a 'camera'

                its mediocre not super bad but not great either, fine for my uses which most often than not is to just take pics of industrial machines etc

                fine for a low end $60 phone

  • does this support wifi calling

    • Yes

  • How this phone compared to Nokia 2.3($79)? Which one better?
